I created this course because too often psych-eds are used as a means to an end, providing a student with a diagnosis so they can receive additional support at school. Once the student has the diagnosis, they report is filed away and almost forgotten. Preservice teachers receive a crash course in psych-eds during their training and do not feel comfortable reading the document because they don’t understand the language.
In A Teacher’s Guide to Psych-Eds, I will take you step by step through the report and talk you through case studies so you can see what I look for when I read these reports. Yes, I know that reading the report just seems like extra work, but a well written psych-ed will give you so much information. It provides you with clues for how to set a student upr for success instead of failure which will save you time in the future.
